When the mayor hands the Flash the key to the city, the prongs on the end briefly flicker out and then back into existence for a second.
At the weird pub on 4th Street, the man playing pool in the background is hitting the 8 Ball with his stick instead of the cue ball.
(trapped on a giant flying boomerang)
The Flash: I swear, when I get out of this, I'm gonna find you and hurl all over you.
Trickster: My plan went south. I mean, what's so special about a disco of death? The heck with all of them – I'm an artist, they just rob banks. Captain Cold, Captain Boomerang…they probably would have gone for it if I'm a captain.
Flash: Listen, I need to go home before the opening tonight.
Batman: We're coming with you.
Flash: You really don't have to.
Batman: We're Coming With You.
Flash: Hey guys.
Orion: You're tied to a very large boomerang?
Flash: Mirror Master!
Mirror Master: You're quick as ever.
Flash: Yeah? Well…you're…you're not really all there.
Mirror Master: Oh, nice try. If you had another minute you'd probably think of a decent comeback.
Mirror Master: The hardest men in town and we all have something in common.
Trickster: Bilateral symmetry!
Mirror Master: Yeah, too bad the Flash busted you before and you didn't get the chance to spend a dime of it.
Trickster: And you know what else?
Captain Boomerang: Well at least he didn't make me eat my own laser kaleidoscope.
Mirror Master: That's a rumor! A complete exaggeration. And besides it was a laser pistol.
Captain Cold: It's like that time I stole an entire train while it was moving. The way people told it you'd think the Flash shoved my cold gun…
Trickster: (interrupting) You know, I've had him on the ropes too.
Mirror Master: Gentleman, we live in brutal times. Last week, to make ends meet I was reduced to hijacking a tractor trailer filled with sports cars.
Captain Cold: That is so beneath you. At least knock over a bank.
Trickster: Got to visualize.
Captain Cold: Visualize? What the heck does that mean? If I don't "visualize" a mortage payment soon the wife'll have me bagging groceries for a living.
Mirror Master: If we aren't taking turns, let's at least see who hurts him the worst.
(all three villains miss and hit a Flash mannequin)
Flash: Better you than me.
Orion: Now I understand. You play the fool to hide a warrior's pain.
Flash: Dude, the bad guys went down and nobody got hurt. Know what I call that? A really good day.
Mirror Master: So, we're the hardest men in town...
Waitress: What will it be, boys?
Captain Boomerang: Arnold Palmer.
Trickster: Cherry Cola.
Mirror Master: Decaf soy latte.
Captain Cold: Milk. (everyone stares) My ulcer's been acting up.
Orion: What about your enemy?
Flash: Huh? Oh, right. Hey, dude, soon as you finish your drink, turn yourself in.
Trickster: Got me again, Flash!
Trickster: Me next! It's my turn! Nothing as stupid as a giant boomerang. First, I get 400 cases of fake dog vomit. I grease the bottoms of them and when the Flash runs into them, the whole mess slides into a wall of metal spikes. The cases break open and what's left of the Flash is buried alive in phony barf! And then…(giggles)...everything explodes!
Captain Cold: You know what? Taking turns is dumb. Let's all just jump him at the museum.
Mirror Master: Brilliant.
Captain Boomerang: Good deal.
Trickster: But c'mon, it'll be great. Okay, you don't like the barf, I can make do with 50,000 rotten eggs and a chain saw. (everyone leaves) Okay, if that's the way you're going to be about it, forget it - I quit! Nobody gets me...
Orion: (about Flash) Central City builds statues to this...fool. Who makes bad jokes, and concerns himself with pitiful men like the Trickster. I don't understand.
Batman: No...you don't.
Flash: So, don't worry. We took care of the bad guys and everything's okay now.
Linda Park: Flash, what about the new museum? It got destroyed in the battle and it was our biggest shrine to you. And you're our greatest hero...(leaning up to Flash's face) our greatest...hope.
Flash: Well...at least I got to be on TV and you know how much I like that!
Captain Cold: That's it? I was all set to crack some bones.
Orion: Then brace yourself!
Orion: Talk! While you still have a jaw.
Flash: (to Mirror Master) While you wait for me to come arrest you, why not take some time and reflect on your mistakes. (walks away) Hey that was pretty good.
Flash: Watchtower - table for one.
Flash: (to Batman) Oh right, uh, cause it's Flash Appreciation Day. Yeah, it'll be great. I understand if everybody's too busy to come, no biggie. My mom's gonna be there. Let's see, my uncle's flying in. Be great if one of the original seven made it. I mean, okay, yeah, it's the Flash Museum, but to me, the whole League deserves the honor, all of us, like I said no biggie...(sigh)
Batman: What time?
Flash: Six o'clock. Nooooo...you're really coming?...Awesome! You're a stand-up guy Bats, don't ever let them call you a crazed loner.
Orion: (to Batman) I can't believe you let that buffoon manipulate you. You'd never catch me at one of those museum openings. (pause) It's not black tie, is it?
Linda Park: (about Flash) When we come back, I'll try to get with him...get to him for an interview...are we off. Geez. He's a total babe. Like the entire track team at once. I can't believe you're not into him, Marla.
Marla: Okay...now you're off.

There are a number of allusions to the Flash mythology in the comics and other TV series.
1.) Silver Age Flash - Wally West works in the Forensics Department of the Central City police station. In the comics his uncle Barry Allen, the Silver Age Flash, held that position while Wally worked as a mechanic. His uncle was a blonde man and looks a lot like Wally's superior here. Wally saying his uncle is flying in is also a reference to his famous comic book uncle.
2.) Golden Age Flash - When the family is taking pictures, what they are taking pictures of is the Golden Age Flash's (Jay Garrick) helmet.
3.) Kid Flash - When Captain Boomerang and Batman face off, behind Boomerang is the original Kid Flash costume, making some version of Kid Flash canon. In the comics Wally West was the original Kid Flash.
4.) The Flash Museum - In the comics, less than a year into the original Silver Age Flash's career, the grateful citizens of Central City raised the money to establish the Flash Museum. The museum would celebrate the career of the city's resident champion with a museum in his honor, containing memorablia from his cases.
5.) Flash Ring - This marks the first and so far only appearence of the Flash' ring which holds his costume. He has a drawer full of them. In the comics he originally kept his costume in such a ring.
6.) Superman Animated Series - In the Flash Museum, a display can be seen commemorating the race around the world between the Flash and Superman, as shown in the episode, "Speed Demons".
7.) Flash TV Series - In the first inside view of the museum, the TV version of Flash's logo is left of a Flash logo seen in the comics, in yellow with an extra horizontal and diagonal lightning mark.
8.) Modern Flash Comics - The TV reporter who has a crush on the Flash is based on Linda Park, Wally West's wife in the comics.
